    Miranda Lambert has returned with Wildcard, her first album in three years.

    The 14-track record was co-written by the country singer and frequent collaborators like Natalie Hemby and Luke Dick. The record also features a collab with Maren Morris on “Way Too Pretty for Prison.” Lambert previewed the full-length with the singles “Bluebird,” “Locomotive” and “Tequila Does.”

    The LP was entirely produced by country hit-maker Jay Joyce, who’s known for his work on Ashley McBryde’s Grammy-nominated album Girl Going Nowhere and Eric Church’s chart-topping Desperate Man.

    “Some of Wildcard was written as I was phasing into a new head space. Some of it was written after I met my husband,” Lambert told Entertainment Weekly. “I think it’s all just a snapshot of that time.”

    Wildcard is Lambert’s first full-length album since 2016’s critically acclaimed The Weight of These Wings. Last year, she reunited with Ashley Monroe and Angaleena Presley for Pistol Annie’s third LP, Interstate Gospel.
